ABBA Remixes

I may not have grown up listening to ABBA, but just because I was too young to appreciate them doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy them today. I remember hearing a few of their songs growing up, but I didn’t become a fan of their music until I discovered their greatest hits albums Gold and More Gold. It was then that I became addicted. With such catchy lyrics and haunting melodies, I simply couldn’t stop listening. It’s a shame the band split up in the early 80’s.

As years passed, I heard rumors of the band reuniting and I kept holding out for a celebration of such. However, rumors were only that, and they were shot down over and over. It was even reported in 2000 that the members were offered ONE BILLION DOLLARS to reunite, and they turned it down! Years would pass, and then in 2018, it was finally confirmed that the original four members had in fact reunited and recorded some new music. (HAPPY DANCE!!!) Now I’m eagerly awaiting the release of their new material.

As for remixes go, I have heard that ABBA’s music was never given any proper remixing treatments back in the day. But thankfully to the good ol’ internet and some totally awesome DJ’s and Remixers, there are now some excellent “unofficial” remixes of some of their biggest hits. In fact, I have to give props where props are due… Thank you, Matt Pop! The Producer and Remixer from The Netherlands has taken the liberty of remixing a slew of ABBA songs, and giving them new life for the dancefloors. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matt Pop, as his detailed work as a Mixmaster transforms everything he touches into stunning masterpieces of their own. Bravo!

FUN FACT: It wasn’t until this year that I actually figured out that ABBA was an acronym played on each of the four members’ first names: A=Agnetha Faltskog; B=Bjorn Ulvaeus; B=Benny Andersson; A=Anni-Frid Lyngstad aka Frida.

FUN FACT #2: The four members were actually two married couples at the time. Agnetha was married to Bjorn, and Frida was married to Benny.
